How to give Gift Cards...

The greatest gift is a portion of thyself. -Ralph Waldo Emerson I saw a cute little felt pouch/tag somewhere in my blog hopping recently, so when when my Mom asked me for some Gift Card holders I decided to play around a little with Felt. These are not top notch, but for my first time I am OK with that! :) LOL

I just did a simple fold and measure with the card itself, stitched the sides, cut the tag shape on the top and added the circle. I punched a hole with my Cropadile then added the ribbon.

The holly leaves were hand cut from some scraps...

I had Just picked up this pretty snowflake bling at the Mike's $1 Spot the day before...

This is the first time I have used this die that I won from Beate last year!!!
